One source of confusion arises because your parameter declaration "array
of char" in procedure Copybytes(var dst: array of Char ...
means something different from your variable declaration
data_in, data_out: Array of Char;
where "Array of Char" denotes a dynamic array - rather different from
the parameter-passing declaration.
